This one's really good. Why do I think 3 images would be better than 2 or 4?

Hmm. "Orgone accumulator" turned out decent. I think I could play with this for hours.

This image makes me feel uneasy and fearful, but I'm not sure why.

Existentialism turned out pretty well.

All it's missing is a few lensflares, horrible fonts with glowing stroked beveled dropshadows. Everything I saw looked like JeffK designed it

Dreamlines does the same thing much better
